Bra Happiness

If you don't know what Bra Happiness is, you obviously have never either 1)worn a bra or 2)know what a bra is. Bra Happiness happens when you find a bra that FINALLY fits you and is comfortable enough to wear all day. It also helps your clothes look better, keeps you from looking like you have boob spillage. I call it having four boobs (MAJOR Felony, Ladies) and smooths out that "back fat" and eliminates Walrus Wiggle (that extra spillage you get on the sides of your breasts that makes you look like you've got two loaves of bread under your armpits for a later-in-the-day snack). Don't think, however, that just because you are part of the IBTC (Ittie-Bittie-Tittie-Committee) that you are immune to your own set of problems- molded cups that fit but add nothing to your fabulous outfit and make you look flat, cups with so much padding that the bra rides up on its own, (or worse yet, starts to devour your blouse from the top (eep!) padding that just isn't in the bra right and is just plain uncomfortable. No matter your breast size, you've struggled with bra issues, and many of us settle with the notion that we will just have to muddle through whatever is out there for us to wear. I recently had a client visit the boutique and unlike a lot of women I have helped, she was an A cup, was lean and tall, and very fashionable. Her biggest struggle is finding a bra that fits her that also compliments the clothes she wears and her very chic style. She wanted a little padding, but the bra she was wearing when she came in (Big Box Store) in my opinion just was not constructed in a way that is flattering to her body (or any body, for that matter). I'm all for padding, but some companies created their padded bras to lay on top of the breast, when *I* think, it should LIFT the breast. In other words, padding on the bottom of the bra, with a "shelf" for the breast to sit on and be showcased at the top, creating the illusion of a larger breast,just something to make the blouse look like something special, you know? Well anyway, I got miss A cup in a bra, and she really liked it, and she told me later after wearing it all day that she actually "forgot" she had it on. That's what a bra should do, ladies. It should make you feel and look like a million bucks without you stressing if it's eating your shirt or showing off your back fat. A proper fitting bra not only gives you a nicely shaped breast, it also gives you a waist. A proper fitting bra gives you Bra Happiness. Have you had Bra Happiness lately? Share your story! I'd love to hear it!

Moving into the e-commerce arena

Well, not really. What I mean is I've been selling lingerie online for some time now. It's been on a very limited scale, but I'm proud nonetheless. The only problem was I was selling on Facebook with their little shop widget, then with Lish, and it was *alright* but the problem was that my customers who did not have a Facebook account were really being inconvenienced by having to email me their order, then me bill them...way too much work for people I want to become regular customers. Everyone has been really wonderful, and VERY patient, and I thank you for that. I have finally figured out how to migrate my shop over to my blog, so guess what? you will all get the opportunity to not only shop in the privacy of your own home, but stay and visit with me a bit as I learn more and more about lingerie, women, men, intimacy, and myself. The "boutique" tab will take you my online shop, and I'll be adding new items daily. Please bear with me as most of you know that when I say this business is mom and pop, it's really mom and pop! We pretty much do it all ourselves. So if any of you computer programmers cringe when you see my shop or my blog for that matter, just mumble "bless her heart" and check back often. I promise it can only get better. If you have any questions, please contact me! I'm available via email. Until next time!
